Hello,


Here is one to keep this lovely thread going => another one that shows one of my dear friends during the end of 1943.

At that time being he was already a qualifyed Glider pilot + had seen action on the eastern front. This picture was taken during his Officers training course .


Cordial greetings,

Another nice one Stijn. Speaking of Gliderborne operations, how about this original snap shot from Gran Sasso.

Thanks Jean Yves for the posting.

Come on guys. I know there are more of you out there with photos.

OK, lets do this. All of you who collect para photos ( and you know who you are..... ) please post the last portrait photo you picked up. If you cannot post, please send the scan to me and I will do it for you.

Also, any comments on Greg Way's photos? What are your thoughts / impressions when you view those photos?

Thanks,

Eric

Eric,

Thanks for posting my photos. I sent you enough to keep you busy for awhile. Nice shot of Max...was he in the recruitment stage...seeing that he is in civilian attire. About 8 Years ago I passed up some pics of Max in training..I thought they were too expensive back then...Today they would be considered a bargain . Bill
